Remove Default ‘Open With’ Setting in Windows

file managementwindowswindows 7

I have managed to leave the make default option ticked when using the "open with" option in windows 7. I ideally want this removed so the OS can manage the file type as before. I can't find the menu to remove this anywhere, I'm sure it used to be in the folder options panel in XP.


Best Answer

On the menu bar next to "Organize" in windows explorer, there should be the default action "Open with App" and a drop down box. Choose the drop down box to change what the default program is.

You can also go to the control panel and get the list of all extensions

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations

This is probably pastable into the address bar of your explorer window.
